Ultimately, while Fitz & the Tantrums' contemporary dance-pop sound is decades away from the aesthetic of their debut, it works, and it's hard to imagine fans not wanting to take make the leap with them.

This is not the band you thought you knew, the band that could once craft authentic and warm pop music at the drop of a hat. It’s the residue of that band making a cynical attempt to polish the gloss off their music to a dull matte to the benefit of the lowest common denominator of pop listeners. On that score, it certainly worked.

Rolling Stone
Fitz & the Tantrums have lost their soul – literally.
Consequence of Sound

Fitz and the Tantrums is an album that feels, by some bizarre paradox, like both a product of contemporary market forces and a depressing relic of an era of the music industry best forgotten.

The 405
I tried listening to this record in as many different ways as possible -- sitting, standing, running, dancing, brain turned on, brain turned off. No mode of listening could redeem the fact that this album is just bad.
"Fitz & the Tantrums" is anything but dull. It's a funky sound and their voices are quite catchy and dynamic. All in all, this is a perfect summertime album - upbeat, interesting, and fun. Take it to the beach and enjoy the rest of the summer.

✅ HandClap | Complicated | Roll Up | Tricky | Get Right Back | Do What You Want | Walking Target
This is the perfect progression of Fitz & the Tantrums' career. Their older music feels stale in comparison to the newfound energy on this record. Can't wait to see them play their typical 3PM sets at music festivals later this year.
The self-titled, third album by Fitz & the Tantrums has to be the sloppiest, and messiest record released by the band. There's little sense of direction, and it's zany vibe feels stunted. A handful of decent pickings can be sprinkled, but otherwise, a very underwhelming effort.
